    Indeed. They show that regarding JavaScript performance on Linux there's no problem at all with the Tabor's embedded FPU compared to PPC platforms with standard FPU. But that's with everything specifically compiled for e500v2, which we learned from Hyperionmp won't be the case with OS4. (I don't know to what extent hardware floating point is used by Qupzilla when running this benchmark, though.)
